Mustard Yarn

The weather cooled off enough the other day for a light sweater and tights, thanks to a gnarly thunderstorm or seven blowing through. Storms (albeit not tornados) are my favorite part of spring. I love it when it's bright and sunny and a comfortable temperature, but man I love lightning. I know this sweater is kind of weird... it's like, a granny sweater with tiny yarn balls hanging off of it. I'm tempted to make fun of myself for wearing it, but the color is awesome. I thought it was especially fun paired with this teal/mint lace dress. Though I don't remember this dress being this short when I wore it for our Christmas cards in December. I know these stubby legs haven't gained any length!
Work was a little overwhelming this weekend. Not so much because we were busy (we really weren't), but because I managed to get what felt like 10 minutes of sleep all weekend. From waking up way too early in the morning, working in the yard all day and catering to clients, then a 4.5 hour photoshoot in Franklin yesterday, I was so zonked. I think my blog has become the place for me to talk about how tired I am all the time! haha 
Today we're heading down to my parents' house for the day to relax a little, procure some lilies for my garden, and get a new lawnmower. You know, adult stuff apparently. Another favorite thing about Spring: people start mowing their lawns! I love the sound and smell... but then again I could just be ultra weird. Whatever. Happy Sunday friends!

  1. Bobbly cardi love! Nice. It is not quite warm enough here in England to lose the coat yet or get the lawn mower out. I'm still wrapped up in my snood and anorak!

  3. Oh no, I love the sound of a lawnmower off in the distance! Especially when I can just lay in bed with the windows open with a slight breeze just listening to it off in the distance. :)

    I love the color of the sweater. I really want a mustard yellow cardigan.

  11. I love the smell of fresh cut grass! That smell illicits the strongest olfactory memory for me... riding to swim team practice on spring/summer mornings smelling the fresh cut grass.. oh man, the smell always takes me right back there. :-)

  21. It's a fun sweater- perfect spring color! I really love those thrifted shoes too! I'm with you on the lawn mowing, the sound and smell are so relaxing. But maybe that's because I've never actually mowed a lawn :)

  25. Granny sweaters are my favourite to wear ;) And the colours in your outfit totally work, I love that the colours themselves are generally a bit softer, but together they really pop!

  28. I love the smell of fresh cut grass! And the sound of lawn mowers! haha. We live in the country, so I also like first seeing the farmers being to plant the corn. And watching it grow is amazing!

  29. CUTE outfit. The colors are absolute perfection together. Also, overcast, rainy, thundery, windy Spring weather is my FAVORITE. Same in Autumn! We *very* rarely have a stormy Summer, but that's also amazing.

    AND I love the sound and smell of lawn mowing. :P The only downside is that Jen's VERY allergic to grass! Poor thing!

  30. I love the smell of fresh cut grass, the sound of lawnmowers, and I love me some midwestern spring storms! We are destined to be friends :)

  32. Gah why do skirts magically shorten themselves!!
    Happens to be all the time. I'm pretty sure I'm not still growing!

  33. I Love the color combo! Such a great outfit! Your shoes!!! Where in the world did you FIND those?! Great post!

  34. Gorgeous! I love the cardigan and the color combo. Lightning storms are my favorite too. Well, when I'm not walking home in them, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the colour scheme of this outfit, and of course, my fav piece is the mustard granny sweater. I can't get enough of it!

    P.S. I'm pretty sure my dresses magically shorten themselves ALL THE TIME.

  37. I'm so envious of your cardi and dress collection!

  38. Sometimes the odd sweaters end up being the best sweaters! It's nice to hear that you love a few storms here and there. I'm a huge fan of rainy days and gloomy days (minus the damage of storms, of course), too! I feel that I'm my most creative and calm on those days.

  39. Definitely loving that mustard color on you :)

  40. Lovely! I dont think I could pull of a mustard color sweater, but you do it beautifully. xo

    ReplyDelete
  41. The yellow and mint look great together! I honestly don't think I would have thought to pair them, but I like it. I like lightening too, as long as it's far far in the distance :) I ALSO like the sounds and smells of mowing the lawn! I don't like to do it myself...it's a chore I absolutely loathe, but I like to hang out on the porch while my roommate mows. haha! I'm terrible.

  42. Kaelah, you have a truly lovely smile :) I love the cardigan personally! xx
